Fire Code & Inspections

It is the City’s goal to visit each business within our community with the intent to assist you in identifying issues that could produce a fire or other emergency. The intent of our visit is to make your business and the City of Fridley safer for everyone; and to educate you and your employees in fire safety and the Minnesota State Fire Code. I understand that as a successful business owner you may not have the time to read and understand the codes that you are required to follow. We can assist you with all your questions and make this a positive visit for you. A national statistic shows that of all the businesses that sustain a fire, over 65% of them never return to business. Their customers do business with other vendors while they try to get back up and running or they simply do not have the insurance to fully cover them. With proper fire education and training, we can greatly reduce the chances of this happening to you.  The Fire Code is covered in Chapter 108 of the Fridley City Code.
